I know as parts slowly fail you tend not to notice as much, but I just replaced my struts - they came in 3 days after ordering them even with Christmas slow-downs. I finally went out to the hangar to replace them and found that:
1. These are a perfect replacement (I know - you told me that)
2. It only took me 5 minutes to replace both of them (not the standard 5 minutes you hear about to seal a fuel tank, mount your engine etc!
3. With only one new strut in place the canopy was firmly held open!
4. I am all done and not even bleeding
Thanks for the post on where to find these.
